BAPO Conference report

Last weekend saw a very enjoyable conference take place with one of the best Technical programme at a BAPO conference and thanks must go to Phil Buttery the Technician on the conference committee.

We also saw the first Show and Tell and congratulations go to Christopher Dodsley from Nottingham University NHS Trust who was this years winner with his method of applying transfers to polyethelyne materials.  Well done Christopher.  We also saw the return of the Algeos social event and I hope you all enjoyed the event.
